    Empi is moving forward on good VW parts it seems?? A Decade ago it seemed like Empi was gonna drop off a cliff with low end aftermarket mechanic stuff and low end bolt on bits and stickersโ€ฆ. Seems like they might have hired an employee that cares and is accommodating to our nerd group???

    EMPI, Do you check the posts of the real VW build websites??? POST UP!!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Thatโ€™s King and Link.. This car is ball joint.. But I would be more than happy to buy or trade for that beamโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Damn…I didn’t even focus on the picture. I know better. Next time I’m I’m headed down I’ll toss it in the car and swing by so you can take a look at it.

    Probably should throw in new ball joints, torsion arm seals, tie rods, and steering damper while itโ€™s apartโ€ฆDonโ€™t forget spring plate bushings too. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

    All that stuff was changed last time they were up in the front end. ย Of course about 1/2 the boots are torn.. ย but nothing is worn out. ย And it has new spring plate bushings already too๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    I found a nice original front end out back and Iโ€™m already done with the front, and back is 1/2 apart!!! ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    looks like itโ€™s been there itโ€™s whole life!! ย Yellow over spray and allโ€ฆ.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

    itโ€™s very easy to just say, order new stuff, and letโ€™s just change everything.. and thatโ€™s fine too.: ย but it doesnโ€™t guarantee it will drive or perform any different.. ย but one thing for sure, the bill can get out of hand quick! ย And you got a bunch of aftermarket stuff ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

    Awesome, I donโ€™t know if we said anything about the inside but I was wondering if you could also look at the seats. The passenger seat I believe is missing one of the mechanisms that allows you to move it forward, and the back seat I canโ€™t for the life of me figure out why it wonโ€™t attached to the car, I may not be very big but usually I can muscle somethingโ€™s into place but not that back seat. Iโ€™m the only one small enough to fit in there to try (my not knowledgeable about car mind wonders if itโ€™s not the right back for the car) I worry about driving with my boys in the car and having something happen where it goes flying (which yes sounds rather extreme.) Dan I think had a couple other wonders but I canโ€™t remember.

    Full cage might be a bit overkill but I see where you are going here
